Heading to Springfield? Looking for things to do? Here’s a look at the famous Lincoln-Herndon Law Offices located downtown.
While in Springfield for a weekend last spring, we also ate at the Cozy Dog Drive in on Route 66, Caught a Drive in Movie (actually 2!) at the theater on Route 66, toured the Dana-Thomas House, checked out the impressive Abraham Lincoln Museum, saw the display of movie props from the Lincoln movie, and ate at the famous Charlie Parker’s!
Now, back to the Law office. We stayed at the Wyndham hotel downtown (last minute deal, turned out to be great!), and could see the Law offices in the distance from our room. It was a nice short walk to the offices and Old State Capital from the hotel. Parking was a little tricky downtown when we did venture out with the car, but it was do-able, though we weren’t there during prime tourist time.
The Lincoln-Herndon Law offices face the Old State Capital.
There were statues, and plaques about Lincoln in the pathway between the Law offices and the Old Capital.
This was a nice spot to check out when you’re looking for something quick. We probably spent about 20 minutes looking at the signs, and walking around.
Although we fit a lot of things into our weekend in Springfield, there are still plenty of things I’d like to go back and see/do! It was a great place to spend a weekend.
